As most of you know, my little cousin Burke plays hockey for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL. Seattle only makes an Alberta trip once every 2 years so we were very excited when we found out we'd be able to go to a few of Burke's games this year.
On Friday night, the kids and I picked Chrissy up from work and we drove to Red Deer to watch the T-Birds play the Red Deer Rebels. The T-Birds lost 8-2 but Burke had the first T-Birds goal that gave us lots to cheer about.
Last night we went to Rexal place and watched the T-Birds play the Oil Kings. Unfortunately the T-Birds lost 4-1 and Burke had no points. The Galli Rally was out in full force as I believe we had 40+ in our Rally cheering Burke and the T-Birds on.
Here are a few pics from last night:

After the game we headed down to wait for Burke to congratulate him on a good game

Burke came out and to our surprise he had brought 2 bags of T-Birds gear for the Galli Rally. Everyone got a new T-Birds hat, Steve and I got new shirts and the kids got light up glasses. It was very thoughtful of Burke and we all really appreciated it!
Next week we are heading to Calgary on the 11th to watch him play the Calgary Hitman at the Saddledome. Can't wait!
Go T-Birds Go
We are VERY proud of you Burke!
